She was sitting on the bench, swinging her legs back and forth and letting the rays of the sun hit her face. She wasn't in the usual jounin attire. Instead she had skin tight spandex shorts that came to mid-thigh, a tight tank top and her shinobi boots. Her hair was still its same, vibrant pink and still cut to her shoulders. It had been tied up an hour or so ago but that was for training with Naruto and the rest of the Konoha 11. It was the Autumn festival tonight and she had promised Ino she would go. And Ino had also told them that she would make life a living hell for Hinata, Tenten and Sakura if they didn't appear with dates for it.
This wasn't a problem for Hinata and Tenten. Hinata had Naruto. Tenten had Neji. Ino had...the entire male population up to Genma's age. Sakura had...nobody.
At least she had her outfit and all the likes sorted. But she needed to find someone to go with otherwise she'd be in for a month (at the l

There really is only one thing you should idolize. Me the Muffin Queen. Gather around as I tell you the tale of how I Derpy Hooves the TWC Muffin Queen became the Hero of Epsilon 2.
Spoiler: click to toggle
I have been a great renowned hero especially in the days of yore. For in 1823, I Derpy Hooves came to the planet of Epsilon 2, where the citizens were in an epic war against the evil muffin race. The battles between both sides were of epic proportions. Thousands would appear on the field of battle, and millions (sometimes billions) would die on that same battlefield. After 100's of years the war had come to an end. It was absolutely horrific. Trillions died, humans and muffins alike. But it was the muffins who won the great epic Human-Muffin War, and thus they enslaved the beaten humans. The dastardly cruel muffins would force the humans to produce muffin offspring. Under Muffin Law, the humans were banned from eating fruits, vegetables, breads and pastries. The humans were tortured

It never occurred to him that this wasn't one of the sporadic updates that he had been receiving since Naruto left the village with Jiraiya. He just made himself comfortable and waited for her to pull out the latest letter and pour them both a glass a sake.
It wasn't until she hesitate that he really took notice. She was holding herself rather rigidly. The windows were closed, making the room stuffy, but quieter. There was no visible sake bottle, only a thick file on her desk.
"What happened? Is Naruto alright?"
She shook her head, "They're fine." She drew in a deep breath and pull a photograph from the file. She studied it as she spoke, "You know that it is Konoha's policy to keep tabs on anyone we've trained who's has decided to forgo t

Shame at the Checkout
Beads of cold sweat rolled down Rainbow Dash's neck. The hot ceiling lights above intensifying the anxiety she felt to such a point that she felt as though she was going to pass out. There she was, standing in the middle of Ponyville's largest store. Her eyes were wide, staring at the newest piece of fan-merchandise being sold.
No, it wasn't anything to do with the Wonderbolts.
It was a limited-time offer Daring Do wallet. Rainbow Dash had to keep her mouth shut to prevent drooling. The wallet was grey and had adventurer's face printed on the front, grinning competitively at some invisible foe. She was a force to be reckoned with, even as just a picture. Hilariously, based on how she looked out of the wallet, Rainbow Dash felt like she was the foe- her hero's ruby eyes piercing into her own like arrows in bows, primed to fire.
Overall, it was beyond awesome, much better t
A MaskIn hindsight, masquerading as a nobody was the everything in the equation.A Mask2 years ago in Romance More Like This
The entire crasis of the night folded itself into that single accessory.
Not that her first thought of the night ("This is going to be boring beyond words") gave anything away to what was destined to unfold. Rather, they were a simple confession of sorts that she had been effectively shielded from both her thoughts and her lips since Ino told her about the party.
But still, even as the word "irksome" attached itself to the idea .
Sakura smiled, amused and slightly dour, as she tied the mask across her visage.
Peering at her slightly made up features through the eyeholes, a single thought flitted across her mind:
A masked ball. It's definitely going to be a laugh.
The pink-tressed kunochi descended into a sea of strangers with only mild resentment.
After all, the dapple of mystery was just what she needed to survive the night. Her general thoughts were ill toward t

"No," Sakura sighed, pushing gently at his chest, trying unsuccessfully to free herself discreetly from his arms, trapping her against the wall.
"One kiss, that's all I ask. And if I don't blow your mind with that one kiss, I'll leave you alone," Sasuke pleaded, his intoxicated state making him beg, for if he was in a clear-minded and alcoholic-free state, Sasuke would never beg, Sakura knew. The irony that Sasuke wanted her now, now that she was no longer in love with him or even slightly interested in him, did not miss Sakura's notice. She sighed in defeat, just wanting him to stop pestering her already.
"Fine," she grumbled. "Go ahead and kiss me, get it out of your system. Not like it'll change my mind," she murmured, the latter part of her response so low that he didn't hear it. She looked at Sasuke, waiting for him to kiss her already. He continued to stare blankly at her. "Well? Are you gonna kiss me or-"

"This is by far the best idea we have ever had, Forehead."
Sakura smiled weakly at her best friend, noticing the way the blonde swayed ever so slightly as she spoke. The large, nearly-empty bottle grasped firmly in Ino's hand was a clear indicator that the kunoichi had been drinking, but the pinkette knew that was not her first bottle.
At last count, it was Ino's fourth.
"To be fair, it was mostly your idea." she replied, looking around at the crowded space of their combined living room, dining room and kitchen.
Familiar faces smiled at her from every direction, those of her friends and fellow shinobi as they laughed, talked and drank. All Sakura could do was hope that they didn't mess the place up too much or break anything, especia

Dear Princess Celestia,
I don't suppose I'll be writing you any more letters after this. Over the years I've said all there is to say about anything worth saying, and saying it again would be useless. Has it really been fifty years since you sent me to Ponyville? It seems like just yesterday I was meeting my friends for the first time, and we were battling with the Elements of Harmony to stop Nightmare Moon. Ah, those were the days. It's been years now since I've had the strength to go on those kinds of adventures. These days I need Spike to help me get up and down the stairs. I'm not as young as I once was.
I'm really writing this to make sure I haven't forgotten to say anything to you in my past letters. I'm very sorry I haven't been sending them as frequently, but I feel like I've already done all there is to do. I know there's always more to learn, but I can't always get out there and learn it. Most of the things I learn now come from books alone. Of course I still see my friend

Just hope someone special catches you.
He had always associated her name with the spring. The cherry blossoms that would float through the air while he walked around town, reading his Icha Icha books, reminded him of her. He had always thought that she would smell of the fragrant blossoms, but instead she smelled of sun-ripened strawberries and something sweet yet earthy that he couldn't quite decipher. She had a heat reminiscent to summer and a cold chill similar to winter. In a sense, she reminded him of fall, which was a perfect mixture of the two seasons. She reminded him of the subtle beauty of fall and he found his heart beating like a drum in his chest when he thought of her.
The change that autumn brought about was refreshing to the young kunoichi. The crisp air reminded her, for a reason she couldn't quite place, of a certain Sensei of hers. Perhaps it was the mystery that autumn presented that reminded her of him. She decides to take a seat on a bench

That just wasn't her luck, however, as she ran into a certain person she was trying to avoid on her way back to the hospital. His dark green eyes bore into hers and she cursed the fact that she had similar irises. He smiled slightly as to not draw attention to their interaction.

To Save Your Life
Heroes are hard to come by
Especially in this day and age
Because of you- I am still alive
Hail, the vanquisher of pain
I fought as long as I could have
But I sank into the weakness below
And I felt my sorrow's wrath
The helplessness took over
My fists let go
Of the resistance
I fell from hope
The light faded in the distance
It was all a dream
A simple false belief
Hands dangled frantically / Tears dripped endlessly
I needed a hero to save me / I yearned to be set free
A hand reached out
I was finally found
I rose back to grace
And the darkness brightened
The savior I awaited
Lifted me up and triumphed
I prayed as much as I needed
Even when I was beyond drowning
I knew a kind soul would pay heed
Every mourning human deserves saving

It didn't matter. There was no past, no future. Only the flames.
Oh, there was the light too! A light that came from everywhere! But mostly there was the flames.
Twisting, flickering, burning at her very soul. The pain was immeasurable, but it had always existed, as far back as she could remember, and she could remember a long time.
Or maybe she could... It was somewhat hard to measure time when there was nothing for her to measure it against. There was only the flames, eating away at her, yet never making her any smaller. Forever burning, the fire was all that existed.
Her body was... Wait, did she even have a body? Maybe she did at some point. At least she thought she did. Maybe she did. She hoped it was a nice body, one with a soft mane and maybe some nice friends to go along with it. Oh! And a name! She remembered that she had had a name at one point. It was a pretty name too. She had liked her name! She wished she

In Between Dreams
A fragment of a second
Just one slight glance
You're the only person
That puts me in a trance
I feel so close to you
But I am so far away
If only you knew
I felt this way
To fully express this feeling
It's like raw torture at heart
Because you live on without knowing
And it makes me desire you even more
A solace night of dreaming
I thought I never would have it
This longing luxury of sleeping
It's what I've always wanted
I thought it was too much to ask for
A sense of rest and relief
I feel as if it's more than I deserve
It's been so long since I had this nightmaric disease
I wish you could know
Of the peace that you bring me
It's something I never had before
I'd give anything to always have this serenity
Never again do I wish to awake
I can't let this placebo end
It's for my own sake
I can only pretend
When I see your face

that made me love her.
She was a sinking ship,
and I longed to descend
into the watery depths

It was the bruises sleeping
on the curve of her hips
that called to me like hungry sirens.
Licking her salty lips,
I traveled the scattered freckles on her back.
Shaping an angry dragon as if together,
we were part of the sky, all long-limbed,
tongues and teeth- she whispered,
"Do you know the story of Draco?"

I thought I was past this,
That I was done feeling this way.
But why is it you that I still miss
And think about some days.
It appears you have moved on,
And I thought I did too.
I'm trying to be strong
And figure out what to do.
But I can't stop thinking about it,
Can't help but remember all the fun we had.
A possibility inside my mind has been lit,
And this idea has been driving me mad.
Could there still be a chance for us?
Could we start it up again?
I don't want to leave what we had in the dust,
So what does this mean for us then?
Maybe I should just come right out
And say what has been on my thoughts.
What happened has made me doubt
What I originally thought were my wants.
I miss you.
I miss us.
With these thoughts, I'm not sure what to do.
And I don't know who else to trust.

What would they think about my choices now?
But I can't help what I feel and miss.
I'm still trying to figure out how!
I mean, how can this happen?

I'm writing for the first time tonight;
When the love is strong,
And the stars are bright.
Writing for the future...
Writing for the past,
Just to see how long it shall last.
A whispering presence
Of company beholds,
Grasping the words and within they mold.
By the gentle strokes of the pen,
Portraying hurt, but no sin.
Resting at Nightmare's Inn.
Waking up to everything, but still wondering why you've been, where you've been.
Fore love has grown,
The mystery ebbs away and the darkness is gone.
Yet passion is extravagant,
Bursting from the roots.
Life is so much sweeter, when you've found the golden loot.
So for the first time tonight
The writing came to me,
But it is all because of thee.
Thy may not write the swiftest words,
Or speak the chosen sentences.
As Influence has minor and master keys.
Confusion must unravel
To see the beauty within;
Of a poets words, Of a blind mans thoughts, together in a den.
Forever this may withhold,
